Our little princess was officially the youngest "bachelorette" to attend Aunt Dana's pre-wedding girls night out. Piera had fun at the nail salon and munching on crab wontons at dinner. Thank you for including her, Auntie Dana (and thank you for chasing her around the restaurant, Janine)!

The "Swingset," 12/24/08

As much as things change after a baby's first birthday, they stay the same. Piera still loves the swings.

Color, Everywhere

One thing, among many, to love about Tulum is all the bright colors. A wooden highchair with hot pink cushions was one of the greatest things Mommy came across on her visit. Wish we could find one just like it back home...

New Orleans Flashback

Awhile back, we were fortunate enough to be guests at Chris and Marion's lovely wedding in NOLA. Thank you, Chris for sending these wonderful pics.


We rang in 2010 in Tulum, Mexico. Our hotel, La Zebra, was right on the beach. Piera didn't mind sacrificing a proper shower and a comfy bed for five days of surf, sand and guacamole—and neither did we.

Happy (Belated) Birthday, Piera

I'm so sorry this blog has not been updated for several months; these past few months have been a whirlwind.

On 12/24, Piera turned one. To celebrate this momentous occasion, she had two parties...

Ate her first cupcake, baked by Mommy...

Tasted her first carrot cake, baked by Kica...

Received her first tutu, via Carolyn...

And learned to walk and run, seemingly overnight...

It's hard to believe that so much time has passed since this amazing little person arrived in our world.

We love you, Piera, then, now and always.
